    A smooth and enlightening journey towards ArchiCAD mastery!

  • Odette Salem says:

    Thankyou, I find your tutorials are good to follow. One thing though, I tried both the mansard and combination roofs and neither worked. I ended up only with a single angle not multiple. I tried both repeatedly. Any ideas?

  • Odette Salem says:

    I have finally found the right angles and elevations to start with.

    • Eric Bobrow says:

      Odette – I’m glad to see that you kept trying and were able to work out a good method to develop the roofs to suit your design. If you’d like to get my assistance on a project, and on Archicad in general, please check out my Archicad Coaching Program at I offer weekly live webinars in which I answer questions and will often open up people’s project files and rework them while having a conversation and explaining how to approach the challenge or issue. ACP is also included in my Archicad Best Practices 2020 training course – for more info, see
